, 69% goes to the nsa, cia and the national reconnaissance center. how have you assessed from all that you have been reporting here the value we're getting, the bank for the buck? what are we doing well and not so well? >> they have some fairly frank internal report cards here. they talk about where they think they've had successes and where they have critical gaps. of course, the president and
disclosed by nsa leaker edward snowden show a massive amount of money set aside for u.s. spying operations outside the cia or the nsa. amen jaifers joins us with me. sounds like a spy novel. >> absolutely. this is one of the most grossly held secrets of the intelligence, how much does it spend on the things that it does, how many employees does the united states intelligence community actually have? they want to keep that secret. thanks to this leak from edward snowd snowden, "the washington post" broke a blockbuster story and detailed for the first time what exactly is in the budget for the intelligence committee, including more than 21,000 employees at the cia. the first time we've seen this level. >> very fascinating reading that story. i know you looked over it. what stood out most for you? what do we know now more than before? >> in this era of drone warfare around the world, the cia reporting a 14.7 billion-dollar budget, that makes it the biggest component for a long time folks thought maybe the cia was no longer the dominant player in u.s. intelligence, maybe the national spashl in
of the so-called black budget which was leaked by the fugitive former n.s.a. computer technician edward snowden. it shows that the budget in its entirety tops $52 billion a year with the biggest share-- more than $14 billion-- going to the c.i.a. our john miller is a former assistant deputy director of national intelligence. john, what did you find in terms of surprises in the budget? >> it was full of tantalizing facts-- some of which i knew because i used to go through this budget. but i think if you're going to pull out the special moments, one, there's the irony which is that the n.s.a. had a budget justification in there to look at 4,000 intelligence officers who they felt might be the insider threat. in other words, a potential security risk who might, i don't know, leak a document like edward snowden. so they certainly seem to have a point there. two, that the n.s.a. and c.i.a. were working on a large program jointly together about offensive cyber attacks against our adversaries since we hear a lot of discussion about cyber attacks against us. and, third, and probably most import
includes possible loss of principal. >> neil: it's not just the nsa. the "washington post" reporting the cia and other spying agencies are getting 53 million bucks a year. that's a lot of money to spy on us and they sort of take out of that same pot to do this. a reason why it says, cut the cash now. the problem with that, it's easier said than done. these agencies can come back and say, you take money from us, it's all on you. go ahead. what do you think? >> that's certainly the case they make everytime people talk about cutting budgets. they say we need this money to keep america safe, and then when you ask -- you follow up and ask, why do you need this money? specifically? explain how this money, this funding for these programs is going to keep us safe. they say, look, we can't tell you because that would be revealing secrets. so just trust us. and so there's this kind of game going on where they say we really need this money to protect you but we can't tell you why. >> neil: you know what i worry about? i'll try to explain it in a way that doesn't sound contracts. -- sound crass.
the text, and nsa on the prowl. >> no, no, no, look, it makes sense in terms of tort law. were they to allow this if you couldn't know -- neil: you're a lawyer; right? >> i am. causation is a very real concept in tort law. listen, from a practical point of view -- neil: how about big government creeps? now, not only to the driver, but anyone communicating with that driver. >> if they know the driver's driving? neil: how do you think they know? how do you think they will know? >> two ways. one way is -- neil: give us your phone. >> thanks a lot, i don't want to hand over the phone. >> let me answer. one way is ed. we have that in situations. there's evidence. if there's no evidence, then you're not going to be spobl. evidence, and that comes out in the court. if they put you on the stand and you were the one texting, and they asked you the questions, saying, did you know that person was driving at the time you were texting to them? if you say, yes, then we know. the other way is a possibility. they may look at your phone. >> oh, my. neil: that's the first way. >> exactly. >> tha
's common sourcing for whether it's coming from the nsa or from the brits. that that was part of their argument as well. micha michael leiter, you said that he was making a case that was so strong, it was conceivably an argument for more than a couple of hundred of cruise missile strikes in two days perhaps. the limited strike that we're told is contemplated should the president order it within the next couple of days. >> from my perspective, he really did. the case that chemical weapons were used by the regime and caused mass casualties is -- frankly, the weapons of mass destruction, i think it misses the nature of the intelligence in those two situations. i did feel this case was so broad, such a moral condemnation, which i find entirely appropriate, you wonder whether now that the administration has defined a narrow window that's likely to pursue, whether or not that action, that operational action really matches the moral condemnation that we just heard. >> richard engel there in syria, we know that there's been a lot of panic across the border where you have been and that

because of edward snowden an the nsa leaks. basically information on what we're doing to try to stop the next terrorist attack against americans. this is pretty explosive stuff. >> yeah. i mean this is increasing, the third rail of american politics, "the washington post" obtained new details about what it describes as a black budget for u.s. spy agencies. here are some of the revelations. the u.s. has spent more than half a trillion dollars on national intelligence programs following the 9/11 attacks. that number includes all 16 spy agencies. for the 2013 fiscal year alone, $52 billion was allocated for the program with the cry gettiag most at $14.7 billion as requested. according to the "washington post" despite the massive dollars spent on the programs, the agencies repain unable to provide critical information to the president on a range of national security. threats. also raising eyebrows from the report the u.s. intelligence lumps israel in with hostile foes like iran, cuba, china and russia as a key target for u.s. counter intelligence efforts. it's amazing how much money sinc
